DECAF Project

The impacts of deforestation on atmospheric composition and climate are an important factor to the understanding and development of new climate and Earth System models.

Funded through the ERC and co-ordinated at the University of Leeds the DECAF project will address these issues. It will exploit and utilise new information from satellite and in-situ observations, combined with state-of-the-art numerical models, to be the first integrated study on the combined interactions and feedbacks between tropical deforestation, fire, atmospheric composition and climate.

Running for a total of 5 years it will address these impacts in order to evolve new understandings for the development of climate and Earth System models and help facilitate new climate and Earth system assessments.
